About the Couple
Keisha and Morris met at school in the Cayman Islands, after her best friend started dating Morris’s twin brother, Maurice. “Morris was my ﬁrst boyfriend, then I had to leave for university, but for 11 years we met up as friends every holiday,” Keisha says. “Then one New Year’s Eve, sparks ﬂew!” Despite living an ocean apart – Keisha in Grand Cayman, Morris in Jamaica – they made it work and Morris then moved to Grand Cayman.
The bride’s outfit for her real wedding abroad
Keisha’s ivory strapless dress was a brilliant ﬁnd from David’s Bridal, Tampa. “I love my dress; I wish I could wear it again!”.
“Morris proposed at my 30th birthday… I was crying so much, I was crying so much, I couldn’t hear what he was saying!”
The groom’s outfit
Morris’s sharp suit was form Mens Wearhouse.
Keisha’s bridesmaids wore Champagne straples gowns, also from Davids Bridal.
Keisha’s colleagues ordered her flowers from Holland and Costa Rica for a chic wedding day look.
Keisha’s childhood church was the perfect setting. “My high school choir sang, and we travelled to the ceremony in my uncle’s Toyota Hiace van that we all travelled to parties in as kids.” Keisha’s boss, Jo-Anne Brown, of Celebrations Ltd.
Held in a tent in a friend’s garden, Keisha and Morris’s reception was just magical. Guests dined on traditional Jamaican cuisine, with an extra buffet of jerk chicken and pork served at 1am, and ackee and saltﬁsh served at 5am!.
“We spent our wedding night in the Presidential Suite and were upgraded for the whole holiday!”
An impressive ﬁve-tier cake, made up of round and square layers, decorated with blossom, roses and twigs. Ann Ogden, also from Celebrations Ltd, made it in Grand Cayman and staff carried a layer each as their hand luggage!.
Both have yet to take the tie off – “it’s wedding season!”
